The Lothian and Peebles Constabulary was a relatively short-lived Scottish Police Force, only existing between 1950 - 1973. The force was created in 1950 by the amalgamation of 4 x hitherto distinct and independent Police Forces namely; Haddingtonshire (restyled East Lothian), formed in 1832; Linlithgowshire (restyled West Lothian) formed 1840; Edinburghshire (restyled Mid Lothian) formed 1840, and Peebles-shire which latter was established in 1841

Constable George Roberts, would have spent most - if not all - of his 22 years qualifying unblemished police service with one of the four former independent forces prior to the amalgamation in 1950

When the Scottish Police Forces were regionalised In 1975, the Lothian and Peebles Constabulary amalgamated with the 'Berwwick Roxburgh & Selkirk Contabulary', and the City of Edinburgh Police to become the 'Lothian & Borders Police', one of then 8 police forces in Scotland

On 1 April 2013, all of Scotland's former regional police forces were merged to form a single national police force, 'Police Service Scotland'
